Honda says that this is ‘your entry to Honda’s inline-four’. We agree with that statement. This is the only inline-four from Honda since 2000 to be priced at this level. How good is inline-four?

We said value-for-money, not cheap. Yes, this is the ultimate value-for-money bike. You’ll get the technological prowess from the Kawasaki Heavy Industries that is built beyond belief. So far, this is the supercharged bike you can buy today. Specially tuned Kayaba suspension makes it handles better.
